    I have a 35" chest. I wear suits in either 35R or 36R. For my peacoat I sized down to a 34R.

    Read what I wrote at the top of my post. You can find all the info in the linked threads.

    Nice thread. I think I'm going to look around the Army/Navy stores in Seattle and see if I can try one of these on. Definitely will be grabbing one from Sterlingwear, I've been looking for a good Peacoat for the winter.

    hmm..I'm almost the same size, so I'm interested in seeing what you think of the 36.

    I'm in the Navy and could go to the NEX and see how much we get these for. I might be able to do a proxy, if it's not against our regs or anything.

    Not a great pic, but it may get the idea across. I was 6', ~155 lbs, chest measured around 34-35". Sized down to a 32L Sterlingwear:

    I dunno... after seeing so many examples of sized down Sterlingwear, I think I might just stick to a credibly designer Peacoat and cop one off the B/S forums.

    I think they would be fine, in small communities, but since moving almost every other person has a peacoat and let's be honest, it's not that hard to size it correctly. So even if I size it perfectly, it doesn't really make me stand out among the crowd. I find the Sterlingwear just so bland and box like that I think I'll have to pass in favor of a more fashion forward cut.

    I bought the Banana Republic triblend (mosty wool) black peacoat the other day in my true size, and the fit is right on. It's slightly tailored looking, and has a slightly longer cut than the traditional pea coat, which makes it a bit more versatile in my estimation. Makes it something I can easily dress up.

    For the record, unless Sterlingwear happened to have one already made, Oxford Greys are made-to-order, which takes 2-4 weeks. I got mine in 4 weeks. So those of you waiting to see them on others may be waiting a while. [​IMG]
